Just received a notification from UPS that I have something heading my way from Bridgestone Golf. I know I didn’t order anything, well at least I don’t think I did. 🤔

Spent about an hour hitting an old Hogan forged 6i blade I keep around.

The lie angle, I had to adjust with my grip, and the loft was no different.

I wanted to see how this blade would stack up against my game improvement 6i cavity back gamer I play.

Long story short, I ended the session knowing I can hit a blade, while getting a little more distance, but no real difference in horizontal dispersion. I actually stopped some balls on the 10' diameter practice green.

A couple more sessions like this will answer a lot of questions I have about hitting blades.

Went to XGolf and played 18 holes at Kapalua and then had time to play front 9 at Bethpage Black. New clubs felt great and I played amazing. So excited for the new season to start once the snow melts.

So it was cold and rainy this afternoon so I decided to stop by Golf Galaxy since I had a $10 coupon about to expire. Tried out the Big Bertha Reva 5, 7 and 9 wood. Then tried out the 6 and 7 hybrid. The staffer was great and just kept suggesting clubs for me to try. Walked out with the 7 hybrid. By then it had stopped raining so I went to the Friday clinic and worked on short game and putting.

Went to the chipping green just to get out of the house for a while.

Messed around with that rule of 12 chipping club selection formula. Not that I use it. Just wanted to see how it worked. Kind of interesting.

After time spent there, I hit some half swing, 80 yard punch shots.

No real focus on anything. Just wanted to be outdoors for a while.

Wife showed up unexpectedly with a pizza, and beverages which we tail gated in the course parking lot.

Played around with a Hazardous Smoke Black RDX shaft today. Pretty impressed.

Hit up the local golf store, did some carpet putting until my dog ate the balls, now catching up on THP.

Finally got to play TPC Myrtle Beach. CPO and at start time it was 40 degrees. Rose all the way to 49 by the end of the round. Luckily it was sunny. It's a great course and challenging in places, will definitely play it again. I found it strange that ShotScope did not have the course mapped so had to resort to guesstimating yardages. Hadn't done that in awhile. Ankle survived just a little swollen. For those that like to walk the course I saw quite a few push carts out there.

I THP'd, spent quality time with the wife so I can sneak out for a quick 9 or so tomorrow, bent a club, watched some golf, listed some clubs, and put a bag together for tomorrow.
